I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty relaxing ~ cleaning up abit and staying home mostly. I did get out Saturday evening to take my 10 year old to Blockbuster to rent a video game and look what I found!!! I've seen the movie but I've been wanting to buy it and this is one of those previously viewed dvds so I was a happy girl!! I can't wait to see it again ~ it's such a wonderful story of a woman doing what she loves and delightfully prospering in doing it!!


My husband made a quick trip through a local antique mall and look what he bought for me!! The sweetest pair of baby shoes still in their original box ~ you think he knows what I love?



He also found this wonderful antique eyeglasses case knowing full well that I will incorporate it into a piece of artwork ~

And then he bought the most amazing group of old locks ~ don't you think?? Some we will keep and some will end up in artwork!




It's so funny that as I get older I find myself seeing beauty in everyday items. Something so simple as one of these locks. The craftsmanship, the age, the patina ~ all add up to such beauty to me. Wishing you a beautiful Monday ~ find beauty in the little things.
xxoo, Dawn

Wow! Does he have a brother?? This is sooo sweet of him. He has a good eye - did you train him right or is he just this good at finding treasures?
I've not heard of the movie but if I see it, I might just pick it up & watch - I love "period" pieces!
Have a great Monday and be so very grateful for your thoughtful hubby, OK?

I haven't seen that movie so I will be picking it up today...can't believe I completely missed a Renee movie!

He went to the antique store on his own? WHAT?!?!?! That is AMAZING! I know you are grateful for such a man, but now that you made this public, you might want to put a couple of those locks on him! :) J/K But this is true...

HE MUST REALLY LOVE YOU! :)

Wow! I have a feeling that you are going to have a REALLY great day! :)

Oh my gosh, your honey did really well. I love the shoes, the box too. About the movie, I love this movie.I don't have it. It is beautiful to watch, a wonderful love story too.
I am on the mend, but have not really had much energy for anything. It has been a long cold spring. I am so ready for warm.
I have been buy to see what you are doing, and as ever you have such wonderful ideas.
I know you are having fun with all this new found treasure.
Hugs, Mary
